Token Unlock API

The Most Complete and Actionable Token Unlock API

Leading up to and following investors and founders vesting out of their tokens, token prices move heavily. However, public data on unlocks is sparse and frequently inaccurate - citing whitepapers with stale information or failing to diligence claims made by teams around their vesting schedules. We recognize that high quality unlock data is critical for effective risk mitigation and opportunity identification. So, we built the most robust unlock dataset in the market and made it available for API for backtesting and quantitative trading.
